As the world deals with the fallout from COVID-19, the reports we are getting from Haiti are frightening. Our growers are reporting that they are expecting Haiti to confront its worst food crisis in history.
The World Food Program reports that currently 35% of Haitian households are facing severe levels of food insecurity, and they expect that number to rise to 65% with the COVID-19 economic contraction.
Famine is a real possibility.
As our own country reels from economic contraction, our own coffee business has diminished by about 75%.
The 300+ families in Haiti we work with rely on this income. Our online business is functioning as before. We are grateful for your business! We are grateful for your partnership in accompanying the Haitians.
Stay safe, drink coffee, grow justice!
